We'll have to do a full body scan and see your passport, please.


Now that Golden Boy is old enough be home without screaming my name every 1/2 hour, I have decided it was the perfect time to work with the summer school program. (However, I forgot that the typical clients are the often forgetful, rowdy, active, and easily distracted younger boys. On a positive note- they are adorable and just the kind of kid I love. Thank Goodness.)

We start with a very brief morning meeting to try to build community each morning. Today during telling sharing we had this conversation:

Jackson: "Lasterday I got my PASSPORT!"

Me: "Your passport?"

Jackson (with a huge grin): "Yep. My PASSPORT!"

Me: "Wow! Are you going somewhere? Another country? Somewhere that you need a passport?"

Jackson: "Yep- today, I'm going to the pool. And I won't have to pay, cause I got my passport."




Wow, it appears security measures at the pool are at RED these days.

Ha! Don't you love kids' imaginiations? I once had a kid tell me that he and his family had gone to India for vacation. Oh, really? First of all, the kid was a redneck from a super redneck family and I doubt they would have any interest in the cultural diversities in India. Second, his family could probably not afford to travel to the nearest Wal Mart. However, I played along and listened to his tall tale. I didn't choke until he told me what souvenir he brought back for his grandmother: a shot glass!

Oh, the joys of education!

Where IS this pool? haha

Its a cute story, but I'd bet that he wasn't wrong. Summer programs for kids come up with all sorts of cutesy names for things. The pool probably calls their ID card a "Passport to Summer" or some such thing.

(And if they don't, they should!) :)

茜茜知道他有了外遇
他變得春風滿面,嘴裡總是哼著歌曲
他開始變得有耐心聽她說話、會買禮物給她、甚至帶她出遊
茜茜知道這是因為他對外遇有愧疚
她沒有揭穿丈夫的外遇,甚至享受這樣的生活
茜茜偷偷的跟姐妹滔說:感謝老公的外遇帶來更美好的夫妻生活!

The dirty dozen sound like they're gonna give you a whale of a summer.

Wishing you lots of laughs before Saturday.

You have to keep security tight at the community pool these days. All that peeing in the pool and everything.

Very cute. I recently made the mistake of discussing what summer school was to my children (because we drove by the high school around lunchtime when everyone was getting out of class). Now (according to my kids) every teenager with a backpack is a loser who didn't do their school work during the regular school year. agh. I don't think I explained it very well.
